FWTS gains IPMI BMC Info tool

Deb McLemore of IBM has submitted a BMC Info, new IPMI tool to FirmWare Test Suite (FWTS).

Introduce IPMI BMC Info

This feature adds the foundation to perform an IPMI BMC Info check that will determine if a Host is capable of IPMI messaging and if so will perform a basic IPMI message exchange to determine the version of IPMI running on the hardware.  In the future the IPMI infrastructure can be used to further interrogate the FRU Inventory and other Sensors to help correlate data and surface any discrepancies on inventory or hardware characteristics.
